Land I love torn apart.

Fierce issues storm my heart.

From distress I cry.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before.

      Thanks for the hand up. I told my sister today I was tired of my “Jeremiah” role and ready to do some challenge for a change. I have one ready for tomorrow (today I guess; since it is after midnight. Wordle. I like it; hope you will too. But I still have Jeremiah’s cries to come.

        I am sorry for my ignorance but I have to read about Jeremiah to understand the significance of his cry.

        • oneta hayes says:

          Sorry. I thought he was rather commonly known as Jeremiah, the weeping prophet. He was one of the major prophets in the Old Testament. Basically he cried out against the sins of his country. Thanks for giving me a chance to explain. I promise I will now feel more free to say, “What in the world you talking about?” when I get lost in your images and all that stuff that I am ignorant about. 😀
